HC Deb 19 July 1923 vol 166 cc2510-1W

asked the Minister of Pensions whether the instructions issued in February and March last withdrawing special allowances in cases of exceptional hardship to disabled ex-service men, widows, parents, and children where a pension is not payable or where a pension previously granted has ceased to be payable were approved by the Special Grants Committee; when it is anticipated the revised regulations, under which the Special Grants Committee will act in future, will be printed; and whether copies of these will be circulated to Members of this House?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The revised regulations will shortly be printed and placed on sale, and I shall be happy to arrange for copies to be sent to any hon. Members who so desire.
